The Estate and the Wiggins-Davies family take great pride in their active association with the community of Revesby. Gavin Wiggins-Davies is Patron to the Living and Chairman of the Revesby alms houses. Peter Wiggins-Davies is a Church Warden at the local St. Lawrence. The family play a key role in the Parish Council.
The Estate also opens to the public for Open Farm Sunday, as well as taking a lead role in improving the local environment by managing roadside trees, hedges and verges, in order that the original Estate character developed by Sir Joseph Banks is shared throughout the whole community. Other involvements include cooking for the parish harvest supper, sponsoring many local sports clubs and helping with local charity committees.
If there are any new or existing clubs, societies or groups from our community who would like to be featured on this page, please contact Peter Wiggins-Davies at the Estate office and we’d be delighted to include you.
